Your Donation to Project ChildSafe Will Support Firearm Safety Efforts and Help Save Lives

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Today is Giving Tuesday and the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) is asking those who donate to worthy causes to consider making a gift in support of Project ChildSafe®, its award-winning community gun safety program that helps prevent firearm accidents, thefts and misuse, including suicide.

This year marks the 20th year for the Project ChildSafe program, the leading voice in genuine gun safety education. To recognize this milestone, Project ChildSafe is asking supporters to consider monthly giving through its new donation interface, which now welcomes one of the most popular forms of giving — recurring donations. Think: Set it and forget it!

Safe storage works: Fatal firearms accidents have declined by 50 percent in the last 20 years and represent less than 1 percent of fatal accidents from all causes.

Supporters who commit to giving $20 per month (in recognition of Project ChildSafe’s 20-year anniversary) will join the Partners in Safety Club. Your support is needed to help Project ChildSafe reach its goal of 2,020 new Partners in Safety. Join “the club” today to ensure an ongoing culture of safety.

Singular and monthly donations are made to the Project ChildSafe Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity that helps support the NSSF Project ChildSafe program. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
